Minnesota Vikings Week 1 Injury Report: A clean slate vs. Packers

The Minnesota Vikings look healthy heading into Week 1 against Green Bay.

Sunday will be the season opener for the Minnesota Vikings as they kick off the 2020 NFL season at U.S. Bank Stadium against the Green Bay Packers in what should be one heck of a contest for fans around the world.

Of course, having the best chance of winning a tough game means having the best players on the roster available. Recently, the team released their final injury report of the week and there are some things to note on there.

Let’s take a look at who the two teams listed on their injury reports for Week 1 as well as their designation and status for Sunday according to the official Vikings website.

Seeing zero players from the Minnesota Vikings on the injury report is a bit deceptive. In fairness, the only player whose name would likely be on this list is Danielle Hunter, who was placed on short-term Injured Reserve. However, a loss the size of Hunter in a game of this magnitude is something that needs to be mentioned.

Otherwise, it seems the team is healthy and ready to roll into Week 1. They will need everyone to be at the top of their game since this game against Green Bay is likely to go down to the final moments, as usual.

Green Bay Packers

OUT

  • Randy Ramsey, linebacker – groin

DOUBTFUL

QUESTIONABLE

The Packers aren’t as “lucky” as the Vikings when it comes to their injury report. The biggest name of note on this list is Billy Turner, leaving the right tackle position to be a weakness if he can’t suit up on Sunday. This is good news for Ifeadi Odenigbo, who might be able to feast on that side of the field and get more pressure on Aaron Rodgers. Rick Wagner will likely step in for Turner if he can’t go.

This is a fairly clean injury report, which is what you want to see in a Week 1 matchup. This game between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers should be entertaining from start to finish, so may the best team win.
